She investigates, soon finds more bodies, and must find a motive and a murderer before the storm and her departure. A U.N. agent, Robert Pryce, appears, seemingly out of nowhere, to help. An aging physician about to retire, a nervous mission chief, a downed Soviet plane, and the weather’s deadly elements add to the story. Can Carrie trust Pryce and does she still have what it takes?.

Not bad. It has some nice atmosphere and a great setting.
Whiteout isn’t as bad as people are claiming it is, in fact I had an OK time with it, when all was said and done. There is a dull section in the middle that’s hard to get through, but the fairly exciting finale makes up for that in my opinion. I give big props to the film cast for having to go through such a rigorous weather treatment, but it made for a fairly effective movie. The negative thing about Whiteout though is, I didn’t think it took advantage of its immense potential. It’s definitely watchable and fairly entertaining, but it could have been a film to remember with that type of setting and the plot, and unfortunately I guessed the twist at the end halfway through the movie. Kate Beckinsale makes for a very good lead, while being believable at the same time, and that’s very important for a film like this. Whiteout has it’s fair share of spooky moments, the atmosphere is great, and in the end I was entertained for the most part, but it could have been so much more.
Performances. Kate Beckinsale is gorgeous to look at, but also a pretty good actress too. She’s likable and her Feistyness, but also vulnerability worked well for her. Gabriel Macht does well as Pryce, he was pretty charismatic. Tom Skerritt is OK as the Doctor, I suppose he had a presence. Columbus Short is likable as Delfy. Alex O’Loughlin is quite intense in his role.
Bottom line. It’s worth a watch on Telly or DVD that’s for sure, it passes the time well.
Whiteout is a dismal murder mystery thriller. It looks like once the film was completed, it went through lots of post production editing to salvage something that could be released hence why Stuart Baird is listed as a supervising editor.
Kate Beckinsale plays a US Marshal at an international research base in Antarctica. When a body is found she needs to investigate a possible homicide before winter sets in and it gets dark for some months. We can guess that the murder is somehow linked to the initial scenes we saw of a Russian plane some years earlier that crash landed as it was being sabotaged by some of its crew.
Director Dominic Sena is out of his depth here. The film looks cheap with dodgy CGI snowstorms. The mystery is mediocre, things happen and it makes no sense. Even when the mystery is cleared up, we have another twist which is predictable.
